Canon’s new 1D-X Mark II has landed in the rental department at Hawaii Camera. An iterative update — the Mark II contains useful upgrades over the previous model yet is not revolutionary.  Somewhat unusually, the new Mark II is slightly lower in cost than the original 1D-X model was when it originally began shipping early Summer 2012. The 1D-X Mark II is sure to be a hit with Pro camera enthusiasts in Hawaii and around the world.
